Teens pile in koalas to rescue them from raging bushfires

A video has recently been posted to Reddit that reveals two cousins traveling in some of the areas hit by the Australian bushfires and collecting koalas and taking them to safety in their car.

The very short clip reveals a car filled with koalas that have been rescued in a car. The entire exchange was filmed on Kangaroo Island

Almost half of the Kangaroo Island is believed to be destroyed by the fires. It is estimated that over 20,000 koalas have died — which is over half of the island’s 50,000-strong population.But thankfully, a small few escaped being involved in that number.
